His Winter Goddess

The man had a love of plants. He would always post pictures of his beauties (as he called them) online and videos detailing their care, species, and other information. I dubbed him the Handsome Gardener, but just Handsome when we spoke. He grew herbs indoors as well, eating one of the leaves in a video […]

An intimate get-together

It has been six years since I visited this art studio. It had always been my favorite while I was attending college, the campus only a city block away. Now married with a child, visiting it was like retracing the steps of my past, and reliving a moment of my youth again. I would usually […]

Needing Air

“I can’t breathe…its too hot…please…” His voice came out in windless spurts. I had no choice but to concede; I did not want to hurt him, despite the silk cords that wrapped around his wrists and ankles. I opened the window, a soft breeze cooling the perspiration glowing on my skin. He sucked in the […]
